Kenzo Okada was a Japanese-American artist best known for his lyrical, Abstract Expressionist style. His paintings were greatly influenced by Zen Buddhism and 17th-century Japanese screen painting. By using earth colors, Okada evoked the aura of landscapes in his abstract paintings. His works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo. In the upcoming May Antiques and Fine Art Auction, presented by the Auction Gallery Of The Palm Beaches, one of Okada’s paintings will be highlighted. It shows abstract shapes in muted colors against a black background.
Also included in the auction is a lithograph of an Alexander Calder steel sculpture commissioned by the Security Pacific Corporation in Los Angeles. Made from carbon plate steel, Four Arches is permanently on display outside the Bank of America. The sculpture is painted in bold vermilion, also known as ‘Calder Red.’ An abstract glass sculpture by Michael Pavlik, a Royal Doulton trophy vase, and several pieces of Bronze Age pottery can also be found.
